Seriously, cheese.

We took a trip out to Edgewater dr. in Orlando Florida to visit K restaurant. We found this place because I asked Tank Girl to find a place for my birthday lunch. I asked her to find a local place that was kinda fancy and not a chain… This place matches that to a T. The location was right on a medium-busy street. You could choose 1 out of 15 parking spots. A new rule I think is safe to go by has been inspired by this. “If there is almost no parking space, you’ll find some tasty stuff on the menu” Their menu changes all the time, which is just fantastic. They had a great selection of wine and beer. The pumpkin head ale really hit the spot on that late September day

Firsts, I couldn’t ignore the Blue Cheese Chips. MY LORD!!! They were even better than they sound. I think there were small chives or something in the blue cheese chunks and the heat from the chips made it into a delicious sauce.

Seconds, I was feeling particularly peckish and ordered the cheese plate.Fancy stuff mind you, the plate included 3 cheese each with accoutrement and a small plate of french bread croutons.

Moody Blue – smoked blue – served with candied nuts
Manchego – Spanish sheep – served with craisins
Irish Cheddar-sharp cow – served with brown mustard.

Couldn’t be happier with these combination.

For the main event I ordered the ‘mac ‘n cheese’ which contained fennel sausage, olives and tomato. Sadly it was totally underwhelming. It seemed like it was missing some flavor notes. It’s cheese component was a kind of Alfredo sauce which wasn’t bad. It for my taste it was lacking salt/general seasoning. Tank Girl ordered a Steak Burger which was made from in-house ground beef, her choice of cheese and smoked bacon, all cooked to order. My bite, the one I could coerce out of her, was delicious. This leads me to believe that you should go with your gut, read the menu carefully and order what leaps out at you.

All in all, you should definitely check out  K Restaurant.
